This is my first post and I seriously hope someone can give me some insight, I was rotating tires and the car shifted, the front jack came off the subframe and punctured the oil pan, I found some replacement pans and took down the engine, I removed all 10 bolts but the pan won't separate, I've tried wedging scredrivers ana hammering but only gaps on 1 side, I don't know if I have to remove the electric stator bolted on the side, I have a replacement engine without the electric motor attached and there's no bolt holes with the stator removed so I don't think something is holding it from within the ima housing, I want to remove the broken oil pan and put a new one cause I don't need to replace the entire engine, any advice is greatly appreciated
